How did Canada's party leaders kickstart their campaigns after Harper called the election the morning of August 2?
This morning, Harper certainly looked the part of PM, although that's hardly surprising after all these years.
As for his rivals, Lilley says Thomas Mulcair of the NDP looked the part, too, against a dramatic backdrop.
But Justin Trudeau was in Vancouver, getting reading to march in the Pride Parade, so all he did was issue a press release.
It's been the same for the last couple of elections: the Liberals just don't seem to have their act together. (Remember Stephane Dion's embarrassing "campaign plane"?)
